Bus Tour | The Great Chicago Fire: Disaster and Recovery
Sunday, October 17
Developed in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Center (CAC), join us for a bus tour that follows the Great Chicago Fire’s path of destruction and highlights the resiliency of the city during its recovery. As a CAC docent provides commentary, learn how the site of the fire’s starting point on DeKoven Street became the Chicago Fire Department training facility. Trace the fire’s route to its northern boundaries in Lincoln Park. Along the way, learn about “fireproof” buildings that burned, the few structures that survived, and the everyday residents who rebuilt the city.
$50, $42 CHM and CAC members. Tour runs 2 hours.
Although the city of Chicago is in Phase 5 of its reopening plan, CHM requires all visitors over age 2 and staff to wear a mask while inside the Museum or participating in a group tour. As vaccinations continue, we will evaluate and update policies. Learn more about the Museum’s safety policies and procedures.
